The Goro wants to play

Soda Pop Miniatures keeps busting through stretch goals over on their Forgotten King Kickstarter campaign.


From the campaign:

The forest spirit Goro has always been a mercurial and fickle creature. Even in times of peace Goro has relished challenging mortals with puzzles, tricks, and cunning traps. That these tests and pranks occasionally turn deadly is of no concern to Goro. Whispered to be as old as the Deeproot Tree itself, it is likely that Goro does not even truly comprehend mortality.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    They’ve got a poll up too. Fans choose if Goro will grin or growl.

      So no option for a world-weary, cynical expression.

    I’m being torn between Forgotten King and the Mercs Kickstarter….think I’ll go for Mercs and put a dollar in FK and pledge manager it if I can later.

      Go by what you expect won’t be on clearance a year or two from now. For example, a few days ago, I saw Zombicide: Season 2 on sale for $50. Don’t know about Mercs, but I’ve never seen SDE for cheaper than $75, so if you’re going to pay full price then make sure to get the extras — if that makes any sense. I’m hungry. I’m going to go get something to eat now.

        Only time I saw Mercs on clearance was when they switched from individual blisters to faction boxes. Biggest motivating factor is SDE has no exclusives, just savings, while Mercs has exclusives that I’m gonna want. Again, pledge manager will give me that 2nd bite at the cheaper apple 😀

          Either way, you get a great game.

        I bought SDE for 50% off, along with a number of the expansions from Cool Stuff Inc a year or so back, so it does go on sale occasionally.

          You lucky expletive.
